A-Z Title & Author

atoz challenge

Hosted by Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews

I failed miserably in this challenge for 2009 with only 12 out of 52 books read, so this challenge will be an almost near duplicate for me but the fun is in trying!!!

I’ll be reading 52 books for each letter of the alphabet for author and title.  I’m pulling from all Newbery books and other middle grade fiction only.   The majority of the books must also be pulled from what is already on my shelves.  In other words, reading my own books.  (Maybe this is why I failed but heck, I want to do it still)
